Mechanical Vibrations (ME-4253)

Recommended Book(s)

Mechanical Vibrations Laboratory Manual

Course Objectives

To study and visualize the different ways of vibration occurances in mechanical equipments and how to control it, i.e. whirling of shafts, spring damper systems etc.

Course Learning Outcomes (CLO)

  1. CLO-1: Measure different mechanical properties like moment of inertia, radius of gyration, natural frequencies of different systems etc. with some confidence and proficiency. (P4)
  2. CLO-2: Investigate oscillations of different systems like simple and compound pendulum, damped and un-damped system frequencies of experimental data by computing derived quantities from the measured values. (C4)
